Had the best stay at Downtown. The bar is great, food is good (PIZZA!) en the people amazing. The room was clean, beds are good and the fan is strong enough to keep you comfy. Staff is amazing and we ended up hanging out with them. Their own tuktukdrivers are nice and reliable. Ask for Adam, he is so friendly...

Five of us stayed here for four nights and had the best time! Would absolutely recommend this gem of a hostel. We think it is the best in Siem Reap. The hostel facilities are basic but cheap, with delicious food and a very well stocked bar all at a good price. The pool is an added bonus with sun loungers,...

Like I booked a 30 dollar trip and on the bill is twice suddenly a tax included which makes it 36 in total. Unfair and gives...

We spent several evenings at the bar-which is on a sand "beach," Next to their pool! Total laid back vibe-fun bar & music! Cheap and delicious food! Everything cooked to order! The Amok is unreal!!! Great spot to meet fellow travelers and relax over a beer-for 1.00-1.50!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Clean rooms, secure property, reliable and trustworthy service- that is our guarantee. Downtown Siem Reap Hostel is a hostel with high standards, but with Backpacker and Flashpacker prices. Staffed by a mix of Western and Khmer staff, our success is driven by and primarily due only to the sheer dedication of the Khmer staff employed here. They speak excellent English, serve with a smile, and are here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. British owned and managed, and established in February 2011, Downtown Siem Reap Hostel has become one of the most popular hostels in Siem Reap, and now with a newly built swimming pool, bamboo gardens, and extra rooms, we are able to accommodate and serve 70 guests per night. Our kitchen is open from 7.00am serving a mixture of food from a cheap Backpacker Menu with all eats under $2.50, through Thai and Khmer food and Western favourites - something for all budgets. Our breakfasts have always been a big hit, with set-breakfasts including tea/coffee and juice from $2.50. Our accommodation includes 6 and 8 bed AC dorms, 4 person AC dorms with ensuite bathrooms, fan and AC ensuite twin and ensuite double rooms and a recently completed dorm boasting 2 ensuite bathrooms and floor to ceiling privacy glass walls. Please be aware that there will be a 10% Vat on your final bill. ... more   less
